LOCAL INDIE band, The Sherlocks - who have supported Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher and also the Libertines - will be heading to the States for a whirlwind tour, only five days after their UK tour ends.
The band have previously toured America, but drummer Brandon Crook admits that they haven’t been ‘Stateside’ in almost two years and the band are keen to grow their fanbase across the pond.
The four-strong band from Bolton-upon-Dearne will promote their second album Under Your Sky and their new single One Day which is taken from the album.
“We will be playing in Austin, Texas, then to LA, then back to Texas and finally on to New York. Last time we were out there for about five weeks but this time we will only be there for two or three weeks.
“We really want to spread our name out there and build our fanbase.
“Since we haven’t been out there in a while we don’t want people to forget us and our sound so we jumped at the chance to go to America again.”
The tour takes place just five days after the group wrap up their UK tour where the band will play at sold-out venues in Leeds and Sheffield.
“It’s definitely going to be a busy year for us, after we get back from America we will jump straight into festival season which is always a fun time of year.
“We have been confirmed for Tramlines this year which is really amazing as we started playing in one of the smaller tents when we were just starting out and we had to push our amps across the road to get from gig to gig. I think our dream is to headline Tramlines as that would be the icing on the cake.”
Despite their busy schedule, Brandon revealed that the band has already begun working on their third album.
“We just want to keep things fresh and to keep producing music for as long as possible.”
The single One Day is available on Spotify and Apple Music.
